We have 650 volunteers that contribute about 95,000 service hours to our collections, research, and visitor programs annually! 👏👏 Over the past year, we've been keenly aware of how empty our museum is without these dedicated volunteers. During National Volunteer Week, we want to thank all the volunteers who have connected with us virtually and acknowledge their hard work and dedication to the museum. 💙
We're looking forward to the day when we can invite our volunteers back to the front lines interacting with visitors and members—as shown in these pictures from pre-pandemic times—as well as behind the scenes helping in our collection areas and research labs. 🔬 We can't wait to see you soon!
